As featured in the Peter James novel "Dead Tomorrow" "The club boasted a smart, ultra-modern and funky-looking centre that could have been designed by Le Corbusier, which housed a range of facilities for local youngsters, including a well-equipped computer room, a music recording studio, a video studio, a spacious party room, meeting rooms and, in the grounds surrounding it, numerous sport facilities." The Crew Club in Brighton is a local community centre which incorporates a large multi-function hall, ICT suite, classroom, kitchen, offices, music studio, and ancillary accommodation. The club provides essential support, education, entertainment and a sense of community to local young people. The Crew Club lies at the foot of a nature reserve, so the building was designed to respect the surrounding environment by incorporating a flourishing, extensive green roof. The shape of the roof complements the existing landscape by rolling gently up towards Whitehawk Hill, acknowledging the natural topography of the area.
